Nihon buyo Japanese Traditional Dance
Japanese classical dance was born about 1603, along with the first performances of Kabuki Theatre. In Japanese, it is also called Nihon buyō (日本舞踊) or nichibu (日舞). Nihon buyo is a Japanese dance, intended for the stage, which combines elements from many Japanese forms of dance. Nihon buyo uses the scenes of daily life and exaggerated, stylistic movement of kabuki, the circular movements of noh, the jumping and springing of Japanese folk art, and some of the creative, original ideas of modern Japanese dance.
Edo period and the sensibilities of that time are expressed in songs and dances.
